when will Obama weigh in on this existential crisis our country faces today?

Perhaps a joint communicate is first needed from all living Presidents that underscore the accelerating threat of Donald Trump continued pResidency?

But Obama is President Opposite and I would love him to do a nationalized televised speech - maybe on the National Mall? - that (1) strongly sides with the rule of law and (2) offers up remedies to contain future Trump viruses from infecting our body politic - paper ballots, mandatory financial record releases for every candidate for POTUS, address systematic gerrymandering of the GOP, etc.

He should also hit hard on the policy and moral turpitude that rots the GOP today. Taxcuts for the rich, destroying the Affordable Care Act with nothing to replace it, Puerto Rican disaster response, immigration, gutting EPA, HHS, and other important public safety nets.

Trump is the culmination of a 35 year journey for the Republican Party.....Obama should drive that point home.

If you understand that the Rebuplican Paty today is the Organized Crime Party...this all makes sense

It's been this way since 92. When Bill Clinton got elected and Newt Gingrich became Speaker. Understand that BC had a humungus libido....it is a trait that most American Presidents have had since George was selected (Washington, that is). But Bill was the first President to pay the price for having adult women get attracted to him. So Newt Gingrinch, Bob Livingtone, Ken Starr, and Brett K went after him for....being a goddam attractive to the opposite sex. And Newt and Bob ran a witch hunt against Bill while BOTH were having their own affairs with people not their wives. Yes, that is hypocrisy.

But, the real point today. almost 25 years later is this....run for Congress as a Republican and you are already damaged goods. You are blackmailable. You do not get to run for federal office unless you are already comprimised. You get to run, only if you check your conscience at the door and are willing to vote the Party Line. No different then then their Russian or Chinese equivalent who runs for national office.

This is what Trump/Republican Party want. One Party rule where you cannot challenge the individual corruptness.

Enjoy the 1 Party state that is rapidly being constructed by the freedom loving Repubkicans.
